Kilian's Robot Shop of Horrors

A small group of Twin Cities Robotics Group members meet at Alan Kilian's house. We meet once a week if there is not a TCRG meeting at the Science Museum. We work on whatever is a current project. Sometimes we just discuss robotic or physics concepts.

This has become known as "Kilian's Robot Shop of Horrors" due to some of the experiments that get performed. You can read Alan's account of his scooter project here.
